Ten Legs & Augmented Humans

Season 5, Ep. 3

Ten Legs, Three Thumbs, Wings, Horns, Extra arms, How would you augment your body?

This week we’re talking with Dani Cloud, an augmentation and upper-limb prosthetics designer. 

And as well as exploring the extra things we might all like to add to our bodies, we’ll be asking Can your brain adapt to wearing an extra thumb? Could adding a heartbeat into a prosthetic arm change the wearers response to it? & What if instead of an arm, you had a robotic tentacle? 

So grab a gin and enjoy
